Frequently Asked Questions
What preparation do I need to do for grading?
There are three gradings held throughout the year. You will need to be proficient with the techniques and patterns outlined in the ITFNZ syllabus handbook at your belt level. You will also be tested on your theory by the instructor, one or two weeks out from the grading. Several weeks before the grading the instructor will hold a pre-grading, where you will be tested and assessed on your readiness for grading. After this pre-grading you will be advised whether you have the approval of the instructor to grade or not.
